For someone with the proper licenses, how much does it cost to build an AOW? Is it still $200?
$200 manufacturing tax stamp. An AOW can be transferred to non-prohibited persons with a $5 BATF stamp.
So even a Class 2 manufacturer has to pay the 200$ tax?
My understanding is if you build your own AOW it's only a $5 tax stamp
No that's the transfer tax, it's 200 to build your own. I'm wondering if a Class 2 FFL has to pay that as well or if it's included with their SOT, I know suppressor manufacturers can do things that normal people can't like build prototypes.
This sounds correct to me.
I vote $200 to manufacture, and $5 to transfer after it is registered.
That is why most folks just SBR most stuff? Which are $200 & $200
AOW stamp is $5 for the transfer IIRC
And direct from the ATF....
Ok so it wouldn't cost them anything, just time for paperwork and engraving (and the work but the AOW I want won't take more then 10 mins to attach) and holding while the transfer gets processed.
It costs them quite a bit to maintain their license. I would suspect you would not save any money, unless to know them well, and they offered to “manufacture” you an AOW from your donor firearm for cost.
It may be easier to just fill out the paperwork and send in your $200. Once approved, you could then attach that vertical grip, etc.
The 02/07 SOT ( Special Occupational Taxholder )pays a flat fee for his license. That includes everything he builds. No additional tax per gun or NFA item. Transfers to a non licensee of AOW's are $5 with everything else NFA $200.
You MAY find an SOT who will Form 2 your items and transfer them back to you on a form 4 for a nominal fee. I wouldnt hold my breath on that though.
